Match Report – National Primary Cross Country Final – Prestwold Hall
This event is supported by England Athletics and took place on Saturday 23rd March. Competitors came from all over England from Northumberland in the north to Devon in the south. Two Grantham Athletic Club athletes took part in this massive event. Each girl and boy age group had over 450 competitors.
In Year Five, Joshua Lane (pictured above) lined up in the boys group which was divided up into county groups. The mass start was a fast downhill which narrowed and turned uphill. Joshua managed to position himself well and continued to keep pressing on. Losing a little on the last section he managed to finish in a commendable 119th.
Tom Broadley (right), a Year Six athlete, started well in his race which had extra sections to race and he held on to finish in 198th position. A good experience for both athletes and hopefully, we will have more athletes competing next year.
The Lane family are multi-eventers, taking part in running, triathlon, off road biking etc. Last weekend the boys entered the Staveley Junior Park Run which is held near Chesterfield. Joshua, using his turn of speed came in 1st place followed by his younger brother, Noah, Year Two, with an awesome 2nd place.
